As the image above ought to communicate instantly, Twitter-user and sportswriting watchdog Alex Walsh has stumbled upon something veeeeeeeery curious, indeed.
So far as I can see, there are three — and only three — possible explanations for the trend that Walsh has identified:
1. Coincidence. FanGraphs authors just happen to be writing same story.
2. Thievery. FanGraphs authors are plagiarizing Neyer’s ideas as soon as he produces them.
3. Conspiracy. Have you ever seen Rob Neyer and Jonah Keri and Joe Pawlikowski and Dave Cameron and Matt Klaassen and Chris Cwik and Jack Moore and Patrick Newman and Matthew Carruth and Eno Sarris and Dave Allen in the same room*? I didn’t think so. Why? Because they’re all the same person, is why.
Possibility? Almost definite!
*Note: You actually CAN see a bunch of these guys in the same room by attending FanGraphs Live in Arizona.
